Detailed Descriptions for the elements in the extension.

Extension
Element IdExtension
Definition

A reference to the authoritative accessible, persisted source of truth of the entire Value Set Definition, including textual information and available versions.

Short DisplayReference to the current trusted source of the ValueSet resource (metadata and definition)
Cardinality0..1
Comments

If this extension is not present, then the canonical URL (ValueSet.url) also serves the purpose of specifying the authoritative source. A difference between the canonical URL and the authoritiative source might arise in some cases due to ongoing organization restructuring, etc., and in those cases this extension may be used. The URL of the authoritative source is intended to be resolvable but that cannot be guaranteed. The designated "authoritative source" is normally expected to be able to generate a valid expansion of the value set, and if for some reason it cannot then the valueset-trusted-expansion should be used.

Extension.id
Element IdExtension.id
Definition

Unique id for the element within a resource (for internal references). This may be any string value that does not contain spaces.

SlicingThis element introduces a set of slices. The slicing rules are:
  • unordered
  • Open
  • discriminators: value:url
Extension.url
Element IdExtension.url
Definition

Source of the definition for the extension code - a logical name or a URL.

Short Displayidentifies the meaning of the extension
Cardinality1..1
Typeuri
Comments

The definition may point directly to a computable or human-readable definition of the extensibility codes, or it may be a logical URI as declared in some other specification. The definition SHALL be a URI for the Structure Definition defining the extension.

Fixed Valuehttp://hl7.org/fhir/StructureDefinition/valueset-authoritativeSource
Extension.value[x]
Element IdExtension.value[x]
Definition

Value of extension - must be one of a constrained set of the data types (see Extensibility for a list).
